    How does iMessage affect data usage?

    I'm new to all this. Please be patient. When I send a text from my iPhone with the newest operating system and it goes to another iPhone with the new operating system, the text shows in blue as an iMessage. Are we using data from our data plans, if the two phones are connected to the internet...

    Privacy Concerns

    Others in this large, complex household share a single computer (with the proper operating system for iCloud). Before I switch to the newest iPhone or change the operating system on my iPhone 4, I have privacy questions. Will my phone/text/photos remain private to me, even though everything is...

    How To Clean Up For All Eternity?

    Here's what happens. Somebody sends an e-mail that I pick up on my iPhone. Let's say the e-mail name or address starts with "S." I respond. Now, and for all eternity, that name/address shows up in the list of S's when I originate an iPhone e-mail that starts with S. I can't figure out how to...

    What's your iPhone signature?

    No lie - this is mine. "This message is sent from a prototype iPhone being tested by only two people: Jerry Galvin and Pope Benedict XVI"

    Killing old e-mail addresses

    Thanks for your suggestions, but no luck. I did a complete restore and then I synched her phone with the backed-up content. When we tested the e-mail after the restore, those pesky e-mail names and addresses from when the phone was mine continue to show up as options when she begins to...

    Killing old e-mail addresses

    I did not restore it as new. Is that where the problem is? Should I do that? But since it's already now synched to her Mac laptop, won't it revert to all that old information anyway even if I start over?

    Killing old e-mail addresses

    Gave my wife my 3G. Bought a 3GS. Everything flopped over nicely, EXCEPT when she puts in the first letter or two of a name for sending an e-mail, my old e-mail recipients show up as choices in addition to her own contacts. Seems like it's every name I ever sent to or received from. Let's put...

    Text Feature Failed To Upgrade

    I just tried to follow the advice to: "Plug it into iTunes and hit the Restore button." Can't find a Restore choice. Where's it hidden? I remember a Devices choice being there on the left which should lead to iPhone which should take me to Restore. But now I don't see Devices. Thanks for the...

    Text Feature Failed To Upgrade

    Thanks for your quick response. Specifically, I get a text that starts a NEW conversation. But when I hit "Reply" no keyboard comes up. If I initiate the text, starting with my contacts, the keyboard does come up and I can send. When I respond to the response, the keyboard comes up. However, I...
